Molo Mhlaba Girls Montessori School (Rethabile Sonibare) - South Africa

Project Goal: $20,000

Current Progress: $4,780 (24.00%)

This container shipment will support girls STEAM education in Khayelitsha Township, outside of Cape Town.  Molo Mhlaba is the first and only girls school in Khayelitsha, offering Montessori School and providing quality STEAM education (with a focus on robotics and coding) through innovative teaching and learning strategies for learners by teachers from underserved communities.

We believe that girls living in underserved communities should have safe, affordable, quality education in their communities.

Molo Mhlaba is opening a second school, and desires another Books For Africa container to establish a library and a computer lab. As with the first container, books will be shared with other community organizations that advocate for youth empowerment and environmental education.

If you would like to donate books to this collection, or have questions about this project, please contact: Carole Patrikakos, Books For Africa Deputy Director, carole@booksforafrica.org, (651) 209-3488
